Crafty Baba

This class is perfect for the beginner or those in need of a refresher course in sewing. Our one day class is a good introduction to the topic but those wishing to study more in depth should take a look at our Sewing for Beginners 5-week evening class.
Sewing for Beginners (Daytime)
The beginners sewing evening class is designed to give you the basics of sewing in a fun and friendly environment. Over the course of five weeks, we will be learning the basics of machine sewing and creating a project to develop our new skills. We will also cover basic sewing techniques like taking up a hem, interfacing, setting in zips and much more.
Sewing for Beginners Evening Class
Making a coat can be a big challenge for some sewists, so why not try it in good company at our evening class sew-along? Over ten hours of tuition you will cut your pattern and sew your coat, finishing it with button holes or poppers to suit. This class is ideal for a first time or more advanced coat sewist. You select your own fabric and bring it with you. For a beginner, we recommend chosing a wool blend but the more adventurous may like to quilt a fabric and sew a lining.
Coat Sew-Along Evening Class
Learn to sew a pair of semi-formal trousers over five weeks in our evening class.

By the end of the course, you will have a finished dress to take home as well as a pattern for your size.
